NBA – Philadelphia 76ers have Embiid in MVP mode. The Cameroonian passed 40 points in a magical night. And he remains the top scorer in the NBA ahead of Giannis and Jokic.

If the last performances of the regular season are the ones that remain in the retina of those who vote for the MVP, Joel Embiid is doing his job wonderfully. Against Indiana Pacers, he led the Philadelphia 76ers to victory. It was a 133-120 with another mammoth 41-point, 20-rebound, 4-assist display from Embiid.
Embiid already has the title of NBA regular season leading scorer in the bag and leads the standings with 33.8 points on average with one game remaining. The Cameroonian also wants to win the MVP award. For which he has been fighting all year. And then storm the fight for the NBA championship title. Although that’s another story.

Against Indiana Pacers, Embiid made 14 of 17 shots from the field and 11 of 15 from the line. He was also 2-for-2 on three-pointers. Philadelphia 76ers needed to win to keep alive their aspirations of being third in the Eastern Conference. And so, they will have home court factor in the NBA Playoffs.
James Harden helped his great leader with 22 points and 14 assists. Most of the latter went to Embiid. In addition, Tobias Harris (18), Tyrese Maxey (18) and Danny Green (15) also reached double digits in scoring.

For Indiana Pacers, who lost their ninth straight game, Brissett scored 20 points and Haliburton signed 19. Philadelphia 76ers trailed by 21 in the first quarter. They then saw their lead cut to 5 in the third and that’s when Embiid and Harden took over the clash.

Embiid wants MVP title
Embiid scored his 13th game with 40 or more points. And he leads NBA scorers ahead of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who has 29.9. In addition, he is one of the big favorites for MVP along with the Milwaukee Bucks’ Greek. But also in contention is Denver Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic, the reigning NBA MVP.
Philadelphia 76ers could still be third in the Eastern Conference. But they need a win in their final game against Detroit Pistons and for Boston Celtics to fall to Memphis Grizzlies. Right now, the Sixers’ NBA Playoff opponent would be the Toronto Raptors.
